I have to confess to be one of those folks who broke that rule
frequently 25 yrs or so ago.
Baby is sleeping- so it is much easier to hold the top of the handles
while 'breaking' the bar that holds them apart with the other hand
while baby still sleeps in the stroller. There was a button that
needed to be pressed to unlock the bar. Once you raised the center a
bit,it would stay unlocked.
Then hold the baby in one arm, and while holding the handle in the
same hand as your bag of groceries, [the same side that is holding the
bag of baby-crap like bottles, diapers, etc] your knee can push that
bar up to finish folding the stroller.
I hope they are better designed today- but I can see how a company
might want to cover their ass by telling folks to do it differently.
I was kidding about needing the bigger vehicles.
Actually we did have a folding double, but it wasn't an umbrella type.
It was a double "long" as opposed to a side by side and each seat
reclined. I think it cost me over $200 and that was 18 years ago.
